Intel NUC - Haswell (4th Generation CPU)
I use Mint for the same reasons - I HATE the damned Unity interface for starters and Mint is cleaner. I also like that they're a bit more cutting edge, add the ALSA daily repo mentioned earlier and I think I'll be pretty happy!

As for XBMC on Mint I'll be compiling from git source, been doing this forever on ION so I'm used to it. No super advantage other than getting to see the new features and the bugs as they get created :-) As for dual boot, I've never done it and have no desire to, if I wanted to do anything like that on this I'd be doing a USB stick for Openelec and a native boot - easy to do!

My previous Mint installs were a pita, I'm expecting this next one to go more smoothly with the tips that have been posted here already, just not yet had time to do it but maybe tonight...
